88 Automag?

Saw this in a picture and was wondering what it was. I have never heard of it before. Google was less then helpful this morning in my quest.

I could be totally off base here, but weren't there a couple pro teams in the early 90's that used big (possibly .88 cal) paint? I can't cite any references, sorry

That looks like a 68 to me. There is no such thing as an 88 Automag.

I have looked at that picture for quite awhile but I only see an 88 there. Maybe it is just a bad laser job or maybe someone did it on purpose. I will check it out his weekend and see what I can see.

The left "8" has a very faint horizontal line on the right hand side of the upper circle, thus making it a "6".

It's a 68 Automag with some fading on the lasering and bad lighting for the photo, that's all.

It's a 68 Automag. My Mag is right next to me here on the wall and I can see the same differences with my gun as that valve. The way they design the "6" looks like an 8, but it is not. In the picture, you can see the slight gap under the top right part of the loop of the 6 if you look close.
